Event description

Description

Join us for this exciting free event on Saturday 28th April, constituting a part of the 'Stay -' exhibition's run. This session will feature a talk by Iyamari, followed by a reception for visitors with an opportunity to talk to the artist directly. The artist will present her works for the first time to the British art aficionados, and talk about her background and artistic inspirations.

In this session, Iyamari will talk about her interests - time and perception - which are a leading motif in her work. She will elaborate on her current creative aim to construct a model of “a moment” and human cognisance, and how her contemplations on these subjects manifest themselves in her artworks. You will be presented with the unique opportunity to have a glimpse into her artistic insights and projects, where she will explain her views on trees as the media of preserving records of time.

Iyamari was born in Japan, where she established herself as a thriving contemporary artist. She is now based in London, where she focuses on her new art projects. Her artistic expression spans a variety of media including multimedia presentations. Notably, she is the founder and director of the TELESCORE PROJECT.

She comes from a family with a rich traditional Japanese arts and crafts background, but rather than seeking a continuation of the old traditions, she reinterprets the Japanese aesthetics into a new modern art form, drawing inspiration for her projects from traditional Japanese art, but employing modern scientific reasoning.


General admission to the exhibition opens at 11:00am on the day.

The session starts at 3pm.

Artist Talk scheduled to start at 3:30pm
